This book offers a fresh perspective on religious difference by setting local challenges within the global picture, and exploring the meaning of religious resurgence for Western secularist ideas. Theory and practical engagement are combined in an imaginative Christian approach to responding to religious difference, without resorting to relativism.

This short, incisive Christian reflection on interfaith dialogue and practice could well become a landmark in identifying and resourcing the next generation's agenda for such encounter... This invigorating work could energise much theology, interfaith encounter, and religious education, as well as the teaching of politics and social sciences. -- Dr Philip Lewis, Consultant on Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations to the Bishop of Leeds, and former lecturer in Peace Studies at Bradford University * Church Times * A thoughtful account of how religion can play a constructive role amid conflicts, and why people of faith should make this effort. -- Craig Calhoun, University Professor of Social Sciences, Arizona State University, USA This book on interfaith engagement, by a distinguished leader in the field, not only vividly tells the story of a remarkable initiative but also gives its secret: an approach to faith communities and religious issues that is well-informed, imaginative, wise in strategy and execution, and deeply relevant to our conflicted world. -- David F. Ford OBE, Regius Professor of Divinity Emeritus, University of Cambridge At a time when some are fomenting divisions among religions, this wonderful book fosters understanding and compassion. Read it and you will feel more hopeful about the world. -- Dame Minouche Shafik, Director, London School of Economics
